About this item
‘Promises’ is Entrance’s debut for Thrill Jockey Records, featuring four astonishingly unforgettable new songs. ‘Promises’ is the introduction to a fresh chapter in the story of Entrance.
Entrance is the multi-talented singer-songwriter Guy Blakeslee. An artist’s artist, Entrance is a musician with the blues running through his veins.
His newest creations add up to a set of rich, cinematic songs featuring expansive orchestration and imaginative storytelling, as unique to himself as they are, at times, evocative of Townes Van Zandt, Scott Walker and Gene Clark.
Among his fans, he counts the likes of Spike Jonze, who featured Entrance’s interpretation of Skip James’ ‘I’m So Glad’ in the film ‘Her’.
Players on the EP include Paz Lenchantin (Pixies) and Emily Kokal (Warpaint).
Artwork for the EP is by acclaimed LA artist Amanda Charchian and the photos were shot by Edouard Plongeon in Paris.
Pressed on virgin vinyl with free download card.
